With the sun finally shining I've been reaching for self-tan, I hate my pale legs and whilst I can embrace my paleness through the winter months I can't embrace it through the Summer. So to help me through the Summer months I use self-tan, I've tried a few different brands which have made a good lasting impression. But I've been trying a new brand lately and wanted to tell you what I thought.

Tantomicals is a fairly new brand to myself but some of you may have been familiar with the brand Anatomicals. They have a body range, hair range, skincare range and even a men's range. I've been testing out 2 of their self- tanning products. I'm a huge fan of Xen-Tan Deep Bronze Luxe but if you're on a budget you NEED to try the Natural look Tanning Cream.

I must be totally honest and say I did have a slight hitch using the Instant Self Tan Mousse* on my face, whilst I won't scare you with a photo I will say I did resemble the old lady off 'There's Something about Mary' movie. I'll leave it at that!
However thankfully the following morning the shower helped wash it away and I was back to my normal colouring. It did however give my legs and arms a beautiful deep golden tan. I would definitely not use this on my face again BUT would totally use it on my legs and arms etc. However if you're naturally darker than myself it would probably be fine to use all over.


The stand out for me though has to be the Natural Look Tanning Cream*, this really reminds me of the Xen-Tan Deep Bronze Luxe finish wise. Whilst the smell is the total opposite being a fresh piƱa colada scent, where as the Xen-Tan is vanilla. Overall I'm really impressed with it, I used this on my face and it was perfect. I would use this in between my Xen-Tan Deep bronze Luxe to help top it up, plus if you're on a budget this would be perfect to use. I just wish they had a larger size of it!!


You can purchase both of these as well as other products from the Tanatomicals range online www.superdrug.com
